I am a gamer and a writer so I figured the iPad was perfect for me. I've had it a week now and I must say I've done more gaming than writing. I've owned the iPhone for years so the first thing I did was download all the games I'd previously purchased and then it bought some board games. I love the iPad as a hassle free table top gaming platform. If you have any recommendations for great boardgames please let me know. So far I've been enjoying Ticket to Ride and Small World, but when I'm with a group of friends all they want to play is Pictureka.
